Severity: 3-Major


When newly created policies are synchronized, the learning states of the policies are different.


Learning mode changes from disabled to automatic on peer device after sync, so learning modes differ on the peer devices.


-- Active/Active high availability (HA) setup in sync-failover device group with ASM enabled. -- Sync a new policy configured with disabled/manual learning mode.


1. On the peer device, change the learning mode to disabled. 2. Push sync from the originator device. Both devices are then in sync and policies have the same learning mode (disabled), so operations complete as expected.

Fix Information

The sync operation no longer attempts to keep the learning flags enabled on the receiving device.
